The Best Curry Chicken Salad

I think when most people think “Curry” they aren’t thinking Curry Chicken Salad.  Though it is quite popular these days.  That’s why I thought I’d introduce the way restaurants make this salad so you can do it yourself in the comfort of your own home.  And for me that’s what it’s all about.  In fact my wife and I hardly ever eat out.  And when you eat like this, who needs to!  Salads like this don’t have to be prepared by professionals.  You can do it, I promise.  Just load your fridge with the fresh ingredients I listed below and maybe some of your personal favorites and we’ll pull this off together.

Curry Chicken Salad

Curry Chicken Salad in just Minutes

For this Curry Chicken Salad recipe, I’m including a simple curry sauce that is, literally, made in under a minute and I filmed the actual cooking in real time to prove it.  Also I’ve added a real simplified relish based with fresh Pineapple and Mango.  There’s a dash of mint and crushed red pepper to give it some flare and I really think it helps this salad step it up.  When it comes to salads I feel it’s safe to make any substitutions you see fit and just use this recipe as a basic guideline.  But, when it comes to the curry, stay true to the proper preparation.  It’s not necessary to serve the Chicken and the Curry Sauce cold but if you can plan ahead and refrigerate those two stages before hand you’ll be golden, pony boy! 😉

If you use fresh Pineapple like I do you’re going to have a lot of it left over, so here I’ve included a link for my Pina Colada Recipe!

I’m just a regular guy in search of his bliss and I find that bliss in food and all of its many cultural differences. A very seasoned and experience chef taught me how to use my pallet to best serve and prepare a dish with all of its natural flavors from other foods before ever introducing “forced flavoring”, such as salt. My goal isn’t just to teach how to incorporate these products into simple gourmet dishes but to show, how easy, it can be done from anyone’s Kitchen with cheaper, convenient substitutions that will not only blow your mind, but insure that most no one will be able to ever tell the difference!
